Today, Code Ocean launched a new Apps Library, which offers a variety of customizable Open Source applications. This new toolkit provides code-free access to pre-vetted Code Ocean Capsules — a suite of ready-to-use tools and best-in-class customer support. With 30 pre-vetted Capsules available at launch (and more being added), it provides researchers with a popular selection of customizable biotech and life sciences applications.
In the Apps Library you will find curated, off-the-shelf applications that speed up your science — all reviewed and verified by the Code Ocean Science Teams. Code Ocean’s customers will also have the ability to use pipelines, analysis, and visualizations with a single-click in a secure environment on their private data, and make changes and customizations to their own needs.
“Code Ocean is dedicated to providing new ways for scientists to jumpstart research without having to duplicate steps on IT setup or coding,” said Simon Adar, Co-founder and CEO, Code Ocean. “We’ve identified the most desirable analysis types across our customer base and decided to create a curated ready-to-go extensive collection in bioinformatics. With our new Apps Library, Code Ocean is offering some of the most useful open source tools as out-of-the-box applications. Using these research capsules, which have been carefully reviewed and verified by the Code Ocean’s Science Support Teams, will significantly reduce the time and effort required to perform analyses. One of the unique properties of the Apps Library is that scientists can modify and customize this collection to their specific needs.”
The Apps Library will contain applications relating to many fields of biotechnology, including Alphafold, ShinyCell, DECIMER 2.0, BWA, Star, and more.
“All of these applications can run seamlessly on the cloud from a user-friendly interface which exposes common parameters and inputs,” said June Snedecor, Head of Application Science, Code Ocean. “The Code Ocean Apps Library will be continuously maintained and updated with new applications and topics over the course of coming weeks and months.”
